The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, asked JASON to consider how AI will shape the future of public health, community health, and health care delivery. The report, Artificial Intelligence for Health and Health Care, focuses on technical capabilities, limitations, and applications that can be realized within the next ten years. This talk will present the this report.
JASON is an independent and autonomous group of select scientists that advises the United States government on matters of science and technology. Members are brought together annually to provide independent, high-level technical and analytical subject matter expertise via directed studies and reports which are delivered to the Government agency sponsors. The JASON group’s collective expertise enhances our nation's understanding of the impact that scientific research and evolving technology can have on national security and other matters of national interest.
JASON members are chosen from among prominent scientists in academia and industry. Membership is balanced so as to provide a spectrum of expertise to apply to federal problems; it is traditionally weighted toward physics, but includes scientists from many different fields such as biology, chemistry, oceanography, mathematics, computer science, statistics, and others. Most members are university professors, and over the years have included several Nobel Prize laureates and dozens of members of the United States National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
